I also managed to changed one of the starters to moules without any problem and it was fantastic. The starter... read more

We had a diner in this restaurant with a couple of Italian friends, we came around 11pm and the waiter did not look very happy but still accepted us saying "OK but this is exceptional!". We sat at our table and began to order, but at each course we were ordering he was replying straight away "we no longer do... More

The entertaining, professional service is the main reason we go. We prefer to order from the menu as opposed to the set menus which we found disappointing in the past. The wine list is good too.The restaurant is within the walled city which is very atmospheric.

Around 4pm on Sunday, when it is quite late for lunch, we arrived here in this lovely restaurant. The waiter was so friendly and we chooses menu of the day which was delighted. Being Delicious, hot, and having fast service is the special quote for this restaurant.

Four of us on a day trip to France. We arrived towards the end of lunch service and just managed to find a table as the place was full. The service was ok seeing as they were very busy but the menu arrived some time after our drinks. We all decided to go for the fixed price menus and the... More

Had a meal on the evening of Saturday 29th November 2014. Arrived at the restaurant, sat down, ordered drinks which arrived promptly and then ordered food. After we had ordered food we noticed that the waiter smelled very strongly of BO. We contemplated leaving but as we had ordered and had our drinks already decided to laugh our way through.... More

Me and my boyfriend visited this resturaunt because we wanted somewhere reasonably priced where we could try some French food! We had snails and Frogs legs followed my a lovely steak main and Creme Brûlée. This was washed down with some nice local wine and friendly staff. Highly recommend!!

Went for a meal here last year when we visited Boulogne and found it very good. Visited again recently for the second time and the food was still just as good. Mussels in particular are very, very good. Quick service too. One minor thing though - my husband had the set menu and it seemed that the portions on this... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and it was lovely. We ordered a set menu for four and what great value! We started with Moules and then steak and finished with Tarte du pomme it was lovely. The lady who served us was lovely and really attentive to our Daughter particularly when she talked with her in French.... More
